I think you misread that comment on ethics. The writer is said that McGuire may have had questionable ethics -- not Williams. Although I'd be curious to hear what McGuire ever did that was unethical.
Light Blue Reign is must-read for all Tar Heels and serious basketball fans. I've read every Carolina basketball book out there, but this is the one that puts it all together. It sort of created an epiphany for me the way the author traces the different (yet very similar) lives of Frank McGuire, Dean Smith and Roy Williams and their uncanny connections that have sustained Carolina basketball for the last 50 years and counting. Eye opening vividly told stories, with insider accounts that had me laughing and crying. If you love Carolina basketball, you'll love this book.
Also, I just finished Roy's memoir.. not much ground breaking info in it because Roy has recounted a lot of stories those before, but it's extremely well written. And some funny Roy quotes as usual.
